Sounds like heart disease is something we may not be able to escape. One thing we might take into account is these people may of ate food that was going bad because of no refrigeration and that could play a role. Not to mention lack of medical care.
I once drew the ire of an emergency medical educator at a seminar about 4 years ago.
The question asked was, "What is the leading cause of death in the world today?"
I answered, "Cardiac arrest." I was told, "no.....the leading cause of death is heart disease."
I said, "I beg to differ and I'm fairly certain the leading cause of death is cardiac arrest. EVERYBODY dies of cardiac arrest. And if that's not true, go start digging up graves until you find someone's heart beating."
Dr. Phil says that marriage is hard work.
I say....if marriage is hard work, you're doing it wrong. Love is not work. Love is eternal.
Heart disease is part of the aging process. The medical "business" (which is a major embarrassment) just wants to take every dime we have by making people think we can live longer and continue to give them every dime we'll ever have.
